Step up to an 8″ Capacitive Touchscreen
Pioneer’s DMH-C5500NEX or Networked Entertainment eXperience line of receivers features an innovative and powerful new user interface that is responsive and highly customizable. The NEX models are designed especially for today’s smartphone-driven lifestyle.
Pioneer’s Modular Solutions receivers are designed for applications, often newer vehicles, with limited depth behind the dash that prohibits the installation of a traditional 1DIN or 2DIN receiver. This installation flexibility is achieved by physically separating the LCD touchscreen display from the sub-chassis that contains the CPU, control system, terrestrial radio tuner, amplifier, and input/output connections. This allows the sub-chassis to be mounted in a different location* or different horizontal/vertical orientation within the vehicle. To simplify installation and increase vehicle applications, Pioneer and Metra Electronics are partnering to develop vehicle-specific Radio Install Kits** that makes the Pioneer Modular Solutions receivers both cosmetically integrated and simple to install.
* Sub-chassis remote installation may require either the RD-RGB150A or CD-RGB150E accessory, sold separately.
** Metra Electronics Radio Install Kits sold separately through Authorized Metra Electronics Dealers. Visit www.metraonline.com.
